time and it's paying off in the polls but not in terms of foreign policy. >> just the optics of that, do you think it has the potential of hurting the campaign? >> i doubt it. it's going to clearly come up in the foreign policy debate, but i think it's more a mistake in terms of foreign policy. at a time like this as you say with so much turmoil in the middle east, to refuse to meet middle eastern leaders, the president of asia, egypt wanted a meeting, prime minister netanyahu of israel, as he well knows, fareed knows better than i do, and diplomacy, personal relationships are very, very important. it's especially true in the middle east, where people want to look you in the eye, take your measure, and decide what kind of relationship they're going to have with you. so i think simply in terms of what's going on in the middle east but it's also true, anderson, that i think in terms of his presidency, you know, taxpayers want a full-time president. they want somebody who's looking after them at times of trouble and yes, of course people expect him to campaign, but not at the expense of
interested in foreign policy and even issues like the defense budget? and that's why issues like that and the onces we don't know about that make me wary of all these straight line projections we're make in the future based on what things look like right now. >> anyone want to address the point? >> which point? >> the point about . >> pick on any of the points. i meant the point about iran and the likely hood we would enter in to military action there regardless of who wins. [inaudible] >> question from the audience? >> yes, sir. front row. >> microphone approaching you from the left. governor romney said he wants to create 12 million jobs during his term, that's 250,000 jobs a month. in the past, the u.s. has always been an exporter. and that was what created jobs. how do you see his promise of creating 12 million jobs in four years? >> unlikely. [laughter] >> okay. that's one view. anybody want to elaborate on that? >> look, i think we are in a completely different, you know, job market. we're about -- a few weeks during the convention which is bill clinton lineback in 1990 if
d date will focus on foreign policy. earlier this week the carnegie endowment for peace posted a discussion on the president's role in leading foreign policy. they talked about challenges facing the u.s. including american influence and engagement globally, the changing international order and emerging nations. two of the featured panelists included thomas friedman, "new york times" foreign affairs columnist and author of "the world is flat." and jessica mathews, carnegie president and director of national security office of global issues. >> good evening. my name is david rothkopf, and i will be the moderator for this evening. in the carnegie endowment discussion about how should the next american president engage the world. this is a debate format discussion. we have a terrific group of panelists here. starting on the far right we have professor john ikenberry of princeton. next is tom friedman of the new york times. next to him is our own jessica matthews of the carnegie endowment, and beside jessica is bob kagan at the brookings institution and we are going to cover several
to avoid t in the debates is a danger of a miscue in the foreign policy area because he doesn't have any experience there. you know, mispronouncing the name of a country, of a leader, getting a conflict wrong. but i see the debates as probably his last ditch hope. >> the hurdles are going to be higher, the heat is going to be hotter. it's the first one on october 3rd, less than a week away. alice, one of the late night shows is having a little fun at mitt romney's direct to camera ad. let's take a look. >> the ad is called too many americans. and the goal seems to be to show that romney does indeed care about americans who are struggling financially. and he does a pretty good job with it. >> too many americans are struggling to find work in today's economy. too many of those who are working are living paycheck to paycheck. more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. and 15 million more are on food stamps. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. >> so alice, instead of trying to make people see that he feels their pain, if you were

the critical role of the presidency particularly with a foreign policy crisis, with so many questions about management in the middle east when you have a key united nations gathering, not to meet with world leaders, including netanyahu at a time with so much concern over iran? >> this president has been, obviously, in constant contact throughout these four years with world leaders. megyn: joining me now, brad blakeman, former deputy assistant to president bush, and dick harpootlian, chairman of the south carolina democratic party. welcome back. now we see some of the senior advisers and some tough questioning put to them, in particular about a subject we've talked about on this show, and that is whether it was appropriate for the commander in chief, you know, within 24 hours of this assassination, first time since '79 a u.s. ambassador was assassinated plus three other americans, to go out to vegas on a campaign event, brad? >> well, look, this is not in keeping with their narrative, megyn, that usama's dead, and gm is alive and well. usama's dead, but al-qaeda's alive and well and killing
